Background: Left ventricular aneurysm is a serious mechanical complication of myocardial infarction and has an incidence of 10-35% after myocardial infarction. Ventricular aneurysm in patients with angina, heart failure, and ventricular arrhythmia should be surgically treated. Endoaneurysmorrhaphy is one of the repair techniques that results in better left ventricular geometry and function. After this surgical procedure the ventriculotomy is repaired either with Teflon felt strips or by direct suture of the epicardium.
